An overloaded commercial plane crashed into a lake in South Sudan located in East-Central Africa on Sunday killing 21 people, a local official said.
The 19-seater commercial Baby Airplane had been traveling from the country's capital, Juba, the Minister of Information for the town of Yirol, Taban Abel Aguek, told The Associated Press.
Officials were investigating the cause of the crash.
"The three survivors are a 6-year-old child, an adult man, and an Italian doctor with an aid organization who was in surgery and in serious condition," Aguek said.
